Games don't run (no errors) and can't install new ones

I used to be able to run games (Harry Potter and the Prizoner of Azkaban and Trackmania: Nations) flawlessly. Today I experienced that it simply doesn't work to either run any of these games, or open their directories via PlayOnMac menu. Just nothing happens when I click "Run".

 

Also, whenever I try installing a new game, a following error pops up:

$APPLICATION_TITLE has encountered a fatal error. $APPLICATION_TITLE will stop the installation process.Visit www.$POL_DNS to get futher information.

Error in POL_Wine_AutoSetVersionEnv

WINEPREFIX is not set!

 

I also have other games, like Worms World Party and it seems to run without an effort.

Does anyone of you experienced similiar issues? I've updated to PlayOnMac 4.2.8, but nothing happens. I can't try 4.3.4, because it won't run at all at my computer for some reason. Macbook Pro 2014 with macOS Sierra.

I would really appreciate any help!
